Someone’s been busy baking, cooking, feeding hubbs, visiting, baking for bakesales and giving out cookies to everyone around, and getting sweet compliments from hubbs like, why dont the soup shops or office cafe ever serve spinach soups.. its so simple and absolutely delicious..:).. my response.. babe, coz its my recipe, which they do not have!
Also, lessons learnt from this season.. be prepared.. I am so unprepared with my gifting and gift packing supplies all out,. gaah.. hopefully i will plan much better next year.
Heres a round up of some sweet Christmasy ideas.. to give my eyes a break for a day or 2…

On another fun note, hubbs picked up some habanero coz they look so sweet.. and proceeded to make some hummus since I couldnt be disturbed while baking.. He grilled one, put it in half a can of garbanzo beans with some garlic, sesame seeds, olive oil and salt.., spread the hummus over garlic multigrain slice, proceeded to eat 2 bites non stop.. broke out in a sweat.. ! and then ate 4 of my cranberry orange cookies with a bottle of gatorade!.. thanks god for some sweet cookies always lying around..:D

Santa Chewie Says a big hello! He is collecting supplies in the building for the Seattle Animal Shelter.. We put up his santa pictures everywhere, since everyone in the building knows him! We are known to most as Chewie’s parents/owners.. who can blame him.. fluffballs of cuteness, who wag bushy tails for everyone for a smile and kisses, always are famous! And Mr Fluffster himself has been adopted from a rescue!
Please Do Not Buy a puppy, Adopt one and give it a forever home this season!
